Updated 2013 Volkswagen CC Coming to 2011 L.A. Auto Show


The 2013 Volkswagen CC adds new front and rear styling to better match VW’s new corporate look. That's the biggest takeaway we can see in Volkswagen's early release of information ahead of the car's debut at the 2011 L.A. Auto Show later this month. The four-door coupe’s new styling has a more serious expression with angular headlights, fog lights and grille, much like the recently redesigned Passat and Jetta wear.

Along with new styling, VW is upping the CC’s standard feature content for 2013 with bi-xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights, adaptive front lighting and LED taillights. The 2013 CC will be available in the U.S. next spring.

There are few details regarding any other changes or pricing, but we will know more in the coming weeks. More photos are below.

Beautiful redesign!


A non-starter for me if it only has 4 seats.


i don't think it looks quite as CLS coupe-y...JMHO


They cheapened the passat and now they cheapened the CC. If anything I thought they would want to take it upmarket. That grill is a snoozefest.


This car is a looker. If they can keep the price competitive, not cheapen the materials too much, and make it more reliable it will be a winner.

They didn't cheapen the CC, it's just a new front and rear. The there maybe slight changes to the interior, but it's mostly the same from 2012 models.


This is definitely VW's sharpest car. It looked great before, but the new headlights and taillights really make it better. However, I am not quite sold on the grill yet.

I'm not digging the new grill but, the rest of the car is nice.


Not bad, not bad at all. at least it's not as vanilla as the Passat and Jetta.


I read your post, i really appreciate your experience and i will get good knowledge from their as well.
